The first of this three series blog entitled Reawakening our Origins, Greg Valerio begins to explore why a fresh look at monastic ecclesiology is needed in the new modern landscape of western orthodoxy. Social breakdown, climate crisis and the neo-liberal economic settlement has led to a hollowing out of spiritual integrity. The Celtic Christian way has much to say by way of filling this existential void.
In this blog on The Rule of St.Columba we explore the idea of spiritual aloneness linked to being accessible and connected. It explores the Columban spiritual tension of being connected and alone in the same breath.
In this final blog posting, we reflect on the impact that encountering creation had on those who took part in The Listening to the Light pilgrimage in September 2015 and how God is intimately involved in the whole of creation.
